“Outstanding cooking: excellent lunch”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Five of us ate here, ordering a series of small, tasty dishes. The foie carameliza and lamb crianza were particularly good. The puddings - usually a weakness in Spanish cuisine - were light and delicious. There was a fruity, rich Ribero del Duero and good coffee afterwards. Service was prompt and friendly. The bill EU100 was most reasonable. This was just the place to have lunch after walking up and down the many hills in this town. It all sounds so simple - but how few places manage the right food at the right time in the right place. Recommended without reservation.

“Good food @ fair prices ”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

Good is great at more than reasonable prices.

Rather large card so plenty of choice.

If temperature allows it you can sit outside.

Strongly advise it.

“Delicious. However, no special orders and do try to reserve in advance!”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

We passed by at 9 on a Saturday and saw plenty of tables available; went back at 10 and it was packed and all booked. Fortunately, the weather was mild, and we were offered an outdoor table out back. Not a stunning setting but we were happy to be able to sit down, and even happier when the food came and it was good! The service was professional, and the wine list quite good, with some smaller winery products available. Loved the cocido croquettes, they were very creamy and flavorful. The "but" would be that one of our party was just getting over a stomach bug and really just wanted a little rice or a scrambled egg, and we were informed that they have a very small kitchen and on such a busy evening they couldn't oblige us.
